Version 7.6 - May 29, 2014

Order Entry Redesigned for Speed

The mobileTWS for iPhone Order Entry screen has been redesigned for speed of entry. You can now edit field values without going to a new page; simply tap and edit. We have also included the price wand feature which displays a list of prices above and below the current price from which you can quickly choose.

Version 7.4 - April 10, 2014

High Precision Forex Quotes

We now offer high-precision quotes for Forex to 1/10 of a pip, versus the current 1/2 pip quote. Please note that the 1/10 pip affects the quoted prices only, and does not affect the order routing. Additionally, this only applies to ticker row data and is not yet reflected in charts or deep book. To enable, open Configuration and check High precision forex quotes.

Version 7.3 - March 26, 2014

Launch Account Mgmt

You can now launch Account Management from within mobileTWS without having to log in separately. To launch Account Management, use the Manage button in the upper right corner of the Account page, or use the Configuration page. Note that this feature is not available in Read-Only mode, as it requires login verification.

Version 7.2 - March 26, 2014

Display Frozen Market Data

A static snapshot of the last known quote (bid, ask, and sizes) will be displayed when markets are closed. Note that static data is displayed only for tickers that have a market data subscription. Frozen data is identifiable by its grey background and small diamond-shaped icon preceding the quote.

Additionally, version 7.0.2 supports the iOS 7 look and feel.

Version 7.0.1 - January 10, 2014

Configure Watchlist Columns; New Slide-out Menu, Support for Structured Products, Guaranteed Dollar Login

You can now configure columns in the Watchlists, Portfolio view, Orders view and Trades view by clicking the configuration icon (three vertical lines) next to the ticker symbol header. You can add, remove and rearrange columns. Swipe left or right to navigate within the page and see additional columns. Additionally, the top level main menu has been replaced by a more sophisticated and easier to use slide-out menu. To view the slide-out menu, tap the list icon (three horizontal lines) to the left of the page title.

You can now add structured products to a watchlist by entering the ISIN. You can locate a product’s ISIN using the Contract Search accessed from the Help & Contacts menu along the top of the IB web site.

Customers who have a guaranteed dollar account can now log into mobileTWS, but can only route orders to the Universal account. The UG (guaranteed dollar) portion of the account will not be displayed and no trades or orders for that segment will be displayed.
